What On Earth?

Over the last few months I have been working on a Hubbub podcast What On Earth? It delves into the past, present and future of environmental issues like air pollution, fast fashion and sustainable periods. 

Why are we making it?

Well for starters, (and selfishly) I love it. It’s given me a chance to delve into the recesses of history and get nerdy about environmental science. I've met amazing people and learned incredible new things. 

But more than that  - we needed it. The effects of climate change are being felt in increasing degrees around the world, we have been given only twelve years to stop irrevocable damage to our climate and the information available for most of us is confusing, overly sciency and scarily apocalyptic. We, in the Hubbub office, have been looking for a podcast which delivers useful, practical advice that doesn’t make us want to find the nearest bunker and we haven’t been able to find one. 

So we decided to make one. Do you want to know more about the environment? Keen to make a change but not sure where to start? Tired of reading three articles that all give you different answers? Hubbub sends these podcasts out as an offering to you. Will listening solve climate change? Probably not. But it might just give you the tools you need to talk to other people about what you’ve learned, change minds and make changes in your life that will protect the planet and the people around you. 

Where can I listen to it?

Our first episode which you can listen to here is all about air pollution, you can listen to it where ever you normally get your podcasts. We take a trip back in time to the last time the globe faced a problem with transport and pollution during the great manure crisis of 1994, find out what’s really going on with air pollution today and what we can do about it.
